has never been better. but netanyahu knows on the other side of the coin bill clinton, you know, weighed into the israeli political campaign in 1998, you go back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime mini

president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary clinton who frankly was part of that mess. they have had to apologize and explain why they were wrong. that vote for the iraq war has held against them. on the republican side, nixon still does have a secret plan to end the war. on the republican side, iraq was a war of liberation if you ask them in 2013. on the republican side the iraq war is what kept us safe so we wouldn't get attacked again the way we did on 9/11 if you ask them in 2011. that smoking gun could have been a mushroom cloud. thank god we went in. we have been through two presidential election cycles since then, and this is still the top line at the republican party, trying to sell us the same lie. and until the republican party gets right on this, the history will never be told honestly because it will always be told as a contested and partisan thing. how does this get right? today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead

president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delive

basis. first second hillary clinton helped to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multi later

of deficits. we saw it during the clinton administration. it's also about looking at how far we've come. if you actually look at what we've already done in terms of getting deficit under control, if you look at the budget control act, if you look at the tax increases from the end of last year, and all of the interest savings associated with that, we're actually two-thirds of the way to a grand bargain without the sequester. what we have in this country is not so much a deficit problem as a health care spending problem. inflation and health care spending has been a little bit compressed recently. over the long haul, that's the problem. that's why it's so disappointing that that's still an issue again and again to move forward on health care. >> haven't the republicans been successful in a sense, they've gotten washington to essentially only focus on deficit and debt. >> joy i want to read a quote from the "washington post" yesterday. president obama now finds himself enacting a broad public policy that he doesn't support and believes will harm the country. president of the economic

% supported it. same day hilly clinton announced she now supports same-sex marriage. >> bt americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. that's why i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as matter of policy and law. embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. >> in a report released monday by the republican national committee's growth and opportunity project, party strategist warned the gop's institutional views on the lgbt issues have become a threshold issue and may be alienating younger voters. for the gop to appeal to younger voters, we do not have to agree on every issue but we do need to make sure young people do not see the party as a totally intolerant of alternative points of view. issues involving the treatment and rights of gays and for many younger voters these issues are a gateway into the party as a place they want to be. the gop at leas

well that has created what dennis ross, former peace maker in that process under president clinton has called this feeling of disbelief on both sides. so i'm still not convinced yet, joe, that this administration wants to go into laborious detail when it comes to trying to broker a peace agreement, particularly because of the threat that iran poses because of whatever the end game is in syria. those concerns may overwhelm. >> let's go to senator coons on syria. just curious in terms of, obviously, the topic of chemical weapons is being raised now as a possibility. the president has called that a game changer. some would say that 70,000 people dead might be that as well. are we talking now about the inevitably come action here, collective or singular? >> yes, mika. i think it's important that the american people be aware that circumstances on the ground in syria continue to change in ways that will move us closer and closer to some sort of multilateral action, particularly if there is a confirmation that the assad regime in syria has used chemical weapons in violation of international l

intellectual gravitas to go against somebody like hillary clinton. >> rand paul is so interesting. i went down to bowling green, kentucky and spent a few days with him when he was running in 2008. you talk to him on some issues back then, particularly on issues of foreign affairs. there he was at the time saying america has to look at itself to try to understand the genesis of the attacks of 9/11. of course he wasn't excusing them, but he was suggesting there was a role in america's foreign policy. he wants america to pull back. he pointed to a split within the republican party on national security before almost anybody else did. he really actually outlined some of the divisions. when you look at his policies what he stands for, abolishing the departments of education, commerce, trade, the federal reserve. i think when he gets more out there in the public, when he's not just giving a talk at cpac, i just think that what he says is going to be too extreme for members of the republican party who support still the hawkish line of american involvement in the world and i think for clearly
